A nation of busy mums…

A fine interpretation of renovation agony, Mr Onthemoon. It’s a bit like childbirth ie: only those who have experienced it can truly appreciate the pain.
And now there’s a poor homeless rubber duckie.
FD – I share your suffering.
I’m driving over to Adelaide in 2 weeks with the Buzz Dog to renovate a recently inherited house. The first thing off the back of the wagon for immediate installation will be the bargain (new) toilet I bought here in Canberra from some wimps who were too scared to go through with their own renovations. Have toilet will travel! I’ll have to drive down the road to the 24/7 Maccas to use their toilet for 24 hours then it’ll be the rusty laundry tub for my ablutions after I rip out the kitchen and bathroom on Day 2.
P.S I don’t like the look of that kink in your pipe!
Your ordeal reminds of that famous quote:
They came first for the shower tiles,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a shower tile.
Then they came for the corner sinks,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a corner sink.
Then they came for the showers,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a shower.
Then they came for the bath
and by that time I had to bathe in the kitchen sink.
FD, having gone through the phases of death, rebirthing and inconclusions of renovation, I record with regret an attitude of almost irrenovation. Wouldn’t go near it with a barge pole now myself.
The round of SOCIAL INCLUSION DISABILITY REFORMS COMMUNITY MEETINGS with the GREAT BIG DISCUSSION PAPER (please read you half-wits) has begun in South Australia.
I attend one this afternoon with my pencil.
How I view your excluded rubber duck with a heavy heart. How inappropriate was that duck on the edge of the bath!
Up our way they’ve got a van thingy called Barking Buddies Mobile Dogwash to deal with just this sort of thing.
